In later books, he proves himself quite an inventor, providing devices that aid in various characters’ journeys. He introduces to Oz the use of mobile phones in "Tik-Tok of Oz." Some of his most elaborate devices are the "Ozpril" and the "Oztober", balloon-powered Ozoplanes in "
with the Wizard of Oz," and intelligent taxis called Scalawagons in "The Scalawagons of Oz."
Thompson did not renew the copyright on her last five canonical books: "The Wishing Horse of Oz", "Captain Salt in Oz", "Handy Mandy in Oz", "The Silver Princess in Oz", and "
with the Wizard of Oz". Thus, these books entered the public domain 28 years after publication, between 1963 and 1967.
with the Wizard of Oz (1939) is the thirty-third in the series of Oz books created by L. Frank Baum and his successors, and the nineteenth and last written by Ruth Plumly Thompson. It was illustrated by John R. Neill.
", Thompson exploits current interest in developments in aeronautics and atmospheric science. She plays with the new terms "stratosphere" and "troposphere." (Similarly, the Wizard refers to "the outer stratosphere" in the 1939 MGM film.) Instead of lemonade, people in Stratovania drink "air-ade" (a pun on "air raid"), as well as "liquid air."
with the Wizard of Oz", author Ruth Plumly Thompson constructed an elaborate family history for him under the name Wantowin Battles. In this book, Thompson portrays Wantowin as a pompous coward with bad aim who loves to eat pickles. Jack Snow gave Wantowin, without a surname, his own entry in "Who's Who in Oz" as a result. John R. Neill's editor picked up on the name and used it once in the rewritten portion of "The Wonder City of Oz".
Baum's successors in writing the series tended to use the Tin Woodman as a minor character, still ruling the Winkie Country but not governing the stories' outcome. Two exceptions to this pattern are "
with the Wizard of Oz", by Ruth Plumly Thompson, and "Lucky Bucky in Oz", by John R. Neill. The biggest exception is in Rachel Cosgrove's "The Hidden Valley of Oz", in which the Tin Woodman leads the forces in the defeat of Terp the Terrible and cuts down the Magic Muffin Tree that gives Terp his great size.
Jellia Jamb is a fictional character from the classic children's series of Oz books by American author L. Frank Baum. She is first introduced in "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (1900), as the head maid who works in the royal palace of the Emerald City which is the imperial capital of the Land of Oz. In later books, Jellia eventually becomes Princess Ozma's favorite servant out of the Emerald City's staff administration. She is also the protagonist of Ruth Plumly Thompson's novel "
with the Wizard of Oz".
For the most part in later Oz books, though, the Cowardly Lion is a presence rather than a major character. His other significant appearances include "Ojo in Oz", where he is turned into a clock by Mooj and saved by Ozma and the Wizard. He assisted against the Stratovanians in "
with the Wizard of Oz", Terp the Terrible in "The Hidden Valley of Oz", and accompanied Dorothy and Prince Gules of Halidom in "Merry Go Round in Oz". John R. Neill played him primarily as a beast of burden in his three Oz books. In all, the only three books in which the Cowardly Lion does "not" rate at least a mention are "The Tin Woodman of Oz", "Grampa in Oz", and "The Silver Princess in Oz". (In "The Marvelous Land of Oz" he receives a bare mention in the eleventh chapter.)
"Tik-Tok of Oz" also contained the first map of Oz and its neighboring countries, which proved to be a very popular feature. Unfortunately for the principle of consistency, this initial map of Oz was drawn backwards, with the Munchkin Country in the left and the Winkie Country in the right, with the compass rose reversed to keep the Munchkin Country in the east and the Winkie Country in the west. [See: "Land of Oz".] Subsequent maps from the publisher "corrected" the compass rose, but not the locations. This may explain why Ruth Plumly Thompson reversed the locations from Baum's -- in her books the Munchkin country is west; and her Winkies East (see for instance "
with the Wizard of Oz" but also in several other books). James E. Haff and Dick Martin ultimately corrected these in new maps designed for The International Wizard of Oz Club. A squarish map that largely follows Haff and Martin appears in "The Dictionary of Imaginary Places". The presence of a "Davy Jones Island" on this map indicates that the inclusion of the character Davy Jones, a wooden whale, as a decoration on the map, was misinterpreted by the book's recartographers, as no such place appears in any Oz books up to that book's publication.
Dorothy is a standard character, having at least a cameo role in thirteen of the fourteen Oz books written by L. Frank Baum (while she did not appear at all in "The Marvelous Land of Oz", she is mentioned several times in that story, as it was her actions in "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" that led to the events in the former) and is at least a frequent figure in the nineteen that followed by author Ruth Plumly Thompson, getting at least a cameo in all her books except "Captain Salt in Oz" (in which neither Oz nor any of its inhabitants appear, though they are mentioned). Major subsequent appearances by Dorothy in the "Famous Forty" are in "The Lost Princess of Oz", "Glinda of Oz", "The Royal Book of Oz", "Grampa in Oz", "The Lost King of Oz", "The Wishing Horse of Oz", "
with the Wizard of Oz", and "The Magical Mimics in Oz". Most of the other books focus on different child protagonists, some Ozite, some from other Nonestican realms, and some from the United States, and as such, her appearances in the main series become more and more limited. In Jack Snow's "The Magical Mimics in Oz" (1946), Ozma places Dorothy on the throne of Oz while she is away visiting Queen Lurline's fairy band.
This page is a supplement to List of Oz books featuring published books, often by small publishing houses. Their "canonicity" is up to the individual reader, with some purists considering them apocryphal. As the Baum Oz books are in the public domain, no clearance needs to be obtained to write and publish fiction about the Oz characters, professionally or otherwise, making the question of canonicity somewhat subjective. Additionally, both of Jack Snow's Oz books are in the public domain in the United States, as are Ruth Plumly Thompson's "The Royal Book of Oz", "Kabumpo in Oz", "The Wishing Horse of Oz", "Captain Salt in Oz", "Handy Mandy in Oz", "The Silver Princess in Oz", and "
with the Wizard of Oz", making the distinctive elements in those books usable as public domain content. The most dramatic changes in her books are in "The Lost King of Oz" and "The Giant Horse of Oz", both of which remain protected under U.S. copyright law, and has rendered some known manuscripts unpublishable. The Oz books of John R. Neill, Rachel R. Cosgrove, and Eloise Jarvis McGraw and her daughter Lauren are all protected under U.S. copyright, making their characters and developments unusable by others without permission.
